The Colchester Multiturn XC 3-axis CNC flat-bed lathe range combines turning with driven tool and C-axis functionality, ideally suited for one-off and small and medium size batch machining.

Designed for fast, high-quality repeatability, accuracy and surface finish to exacting toolroom accuracy standards (DIN 8605), which ultimately significantly reduces component production costs.

The Multiturn XC MillTurn range incorporates turning with milling, drilling and tapping functionality, reducing the need for second operation production, and fitted with the latest state-of-the-art Siemens CNC control system with integrated ShopTurn conversational programming system makes the Multiturn the ideal machine for one-off and small and medium size batch machining.

The Multiturn flat-bed configuration and bed lengths of up to 6 metres means the Colchester MultiTurn is equally at home with long shafts, billets, bar stock, castings and much, much more. The lathe hardened and ground bedways are robustly manufactured from high performance cast-iron and fully engineered for maximum CNC capability.
